Christophe Fercocq and Hervé Franc, the two founding partners, have been working as a team in private equity since 1993. After turning around a French-based private equity fund, they set up the French office of LGV in 1996 which they managed until the creation of Cobalt Capital in 2004.

The Cobalt team has arranged more than 30 transactions, in various sectors such as industrial goods, health, business support services or leisure, representing an enterprise value of more than €2bn.

Entirely controlled by its founders since creation, Cobalt Capital, AMF regulated, has €150m under management.
